Tuition

I can offer private one-to-one saxophone tuition in the Tiptree and surrounding areas whether you are an absolute beginner or more advanced player. Depending on your requirements, I can either come to you in your own home or I have a teaching studio in the centre of Tiptree.

My specialist areas are jazz improvisation but can accommodate all other styles. Also music theory and how to build a structured practise routine. All lessons include handouts with references to topics covered in the lessons, CD’s of backing tracks used when learning tunes and improvisation techniques. I have completed an N.V.Q. Teaching course via Access to Music (Leicester College) which incorporated a one year placement in the music department at the Colne Community College, Brightlingsea working alongside the head of music Mr Simon Lovell. As part of this course I wrote a progressive instrumental teaching plan entitled: “Thirty week improvisation course for saxophone”. I incorporate this as part of my private tuition syllabus.I have been teaching since 1995 and many of my past and present students are now teaching themselves or playing live gigs in various bands!
